SORT BY Relevancy
Why I use "blogocombat" to describe a wide range of online discussion, debate, argument, and any form of communication of non-homogenous ideas and variegated opinions.
Why I welcome both destructive and constructive criticism and why I shun anonymous bloggers and anonymous comments, with very few exceptions.
New techniques being used by trolls, including the strange but common phenomenon of the Reverse Troll is examined in great detail. As a veteran hardcore blogger and social media strategist, I reveal some of my deepest secrets related to online debates, professional roundtables, and panel discussions.
I explain how flattery and praise can be used against you, luring you into the malicious web of a bitter and jealous control freak. This "reverse trolling" is described and remedies for the problem are recommended.
The basic fundamental principle boils down to the Text vs. Text premise: you should not feel elated or angry when reading online text or hearing online speech or viewing online video. You must, in the case of internet discussions, be emotionally dead, neutral, oblivious, with no thin-skinned sensitivity or easy-to-push buttons.
Learn how to express yourself with bold but polite confidence in every situtation online. Discover how to overcome the ploys of trolls and their ilk. Explore proven techniques for communicating your dissent, disagreement, or diverse viewpoint, without making enemies or attacking those who have a different perspective.

Trolls often use techniques that are commonly used in mind control and brainwashing.
They attempt to tear you down and destroy your personality, by relentlessly accusing you, needling you, to the point where you are disoriented and in despair.
In a malevolent "sensitivity training" program, you might be asked to give a speech to the group, a short summary of your life history. When you're done, the leader will ruthlessly attack you, caling you a jerk, hypocrite, or other filthy names.
You will be shocked. The leader will then tell you that in your life story, you took credit for every good thing and success you achieved, and you blamed others for every bad thing and failure you experienced.
Trolls and cyberbullies use similar tactics. They will accuse you of something. You defend yourself. Then they accuse you of something else. You defend yourself again. If you allow them to keep it up, they may be able to trap you into a contradiction, which they'll use against you.
Lean how to spot the typical methods of trolls, cyberbullies, and mind control cults -- and turn the tables on them.
